Elves… over and over again we are inspired by this beautiful race. The possibilities are limitless! Below, you can find elves we designed ourselves. We created and designed another type of elf, Ithilwen, whose wardrobe is based on the Hobbit movies.

 

Warrior elf
Sexy and combative.

Our first costume made of real leather!

This customer came to us with a drawing of a sadly unknown artist, asking us to design a costume based on it. soon we found out we had to learn new techniques; leather working using various (cutting) methods as well as painting it.

The costume consists of a leather corset top, a belt with a fabric skirt and shoulder- and arm protection. Next to that there’s a cape wit large hood, a circlet and a necklace.

We painted the leather in various shades of red and gold on the carvings. The necklace too has been painted in the same type of gold to match the rest. The circlet is painted in red and green on the tropical flower with a gold wash.

The gemstone we used is aventurine, that went well with both the customer and the original drawing. We even painted the leather cord that closes the corset and the vambraces by dipping it in a paint bath, to make it match the rest of the costume.

We are very content with this magical creation.
Flower fairies
For the street theatre on stilts called Ingrallae we were commissioned to design a set of costumes and accessories based on a story they wanted to act out during the event ‘Deventer op stelten’ (Deventer on stilts).

The idea; two groups of fairies, a ‘good’ and an ‘evil’ side, both looking for a powerfull staff. It had to take place in the twilight so the costumes needed to be lit up as well.

We designed a staff like a big branch. If the evil party has it in possession, it lights up red. If the good party has it, the light is blue.

We designed a fairy, the head fairy, with an asymmetrical dress and a large lit up collar and wings. Her dress, consisting of various coloured leaves made of organza and tulle (the costumes had to be light because of the stilts) became enormous and spectacular.

Her followers, as parts of her, all should be wearing one of the colours from her skirt. A dark blue petal in her skirt would for example result in a little flower fairy with a skirt that goes from dark blue to white. A pink petal would result in a dress from pink to white. De smaller fairies had to have lit up wings too.

Each fairy has a head ornament in white combined with the colour of her dress. The head fairy has a head ornament and necklace that has simili rhinestones in it with all the colours of each little fairy, to sybolise her children both in her skirt and her necklace. Next to that it has a large facetted bead in the same colour of blue as the light in the staff, because this light represents her essence.

Unfortunately, this project couldn’t be finished due to circumstances with Ingrallae, so we were only able to realize two little fairies and the head fairy.
Dark fairy
For the street theatre on stilts called Ingrallae we were commissioned to design a set of costumes and accessories based on a story they wanted to act out during the event ‘Deventer op stelten’ (Deventer on stilts).

The idea; two groups of fairies, a ‘good’ and an ‘evil’ side, both looking for a powerfull staff. It had to take place in the twilight so the costumes needed to be lit up as well.

We designed a staff like a big branch. If the evil party has it in possession, it lights up red. If the good party has it, the light is blue.

We designed a dark fairy with followers, all based on dead leaves and insects.

A spectacular leather collar with red light and vains out of painted gel medium. An enormous cape which suggests a state of decay and various leather elements (on the arms, hands, legs) that even cover the top of the stilts, thus creating some kind of big insect.

A picture is worth a thousand words in case of our dark fairy; check out the pictures to get a picture of this (according to us) spectacular costume.

Unfortunately, this project couldn’t be finished due to circumstances with Ingrallae, so we were only able to realize the dark fairy.
Golden fairy
“I would like a dress made of shiny golden fabric. No satin”.

This, and a window sticker of a fairy for inspiration, was all we got to design her a dress. A very fun commission because we were able to add wings, a circlet, a necklace, a shawl and matching bag.

We painted roses yellow and gold, made glitter tulle decorations and embellished the wings with applied pieces of lace. We created a shiny golden dress, like the customer asked us to.
